To support these local responses, Forever Manchester is offering awards of up to £1,000.

Room to Reward is a unique volunteer-recognition charity created to say ‘thank you’ to the Hidden Heroes – inspirational volunteers who give up their time to make a difference to those who need it most.
Partner hotels donate their unsold rooms, charities and community groups nominate their Hidden Heroes for a break – Room to Reward make it happen!
The charity launched in 2015 and since then some 220 hotels have joined the scheme. It aims to reallocate unsold rooms to "hidden heroes" who work to help others.
